Greetings Diddlers:

A bit thin last week but many of our regulars were in there.  W6SX was on the road and did pop in for 1 Q from W7QM.  I hope everyone had a great time in the NAQP RTTY.  The 3830 page looked pretty full so good activity.

The upcoming weekend looks like it will be all SSB for us on this side of the pond.  The Open Ukraine RTTY contest is listed but the times and band combinations don’t look good for us.  So warm up the diddle machine Thursday evening and join us for 30 minutes of NA Sprinting to get your fix!

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening (in NA)  get together:

Friday,  1 Mar 2019, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 28 Feb 2019 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: 1805 and up (Last two minutes seem to be popular…)
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules
-- Mults per band.-- 100W power limit

Diddle diddle,
